Sony Encourages 'LittleBigPlanet' Ad Theft in SF

Sony wants you to know that Sackboy is their new mascot, and they're making super-fun-happy ads to do so. The character comes from PlayStation 3's upcoming fall title, "LittleBigPlanet," which they hope you'll associate with PS3 as quick as you would Mario to Nintendo. The game's ad campaign hits Los Angeles, New York, and our backyard of SF with "LittleBig Billboards" -- miniature ads the size of small yard signs that feature working lights, ladders, and other high-end art and design. Trinkets that awesome are just begging to be purloined, and a report from AdAge says that's the point. So keep your eyes open for some of that interactive, light-up cuteness and call finders-keepers. --Oscar Pascual

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
